An interdisciplinary research group from the Politecnico di Milano has studied the impact of the pandemic on the way we do research and use university spaces, collecting the experiences of 8,049 university scholars from around Italy.

The results of the analysis show how research is generally becoming more individual (the percentage of collaborative research activities changed from 42% before COVID to 31% now, while individual activity grew by about 10%) and how men, both before and during COVID-working, have greater access to different work environments compared to women.

Young researchers have also seen a consistent decrease in their collaborative research activities at a crucial point in their academic careers.
